Bowl Championship Series Games

From the 1998 season until the 2005 season, four BCS bowls have determined the national champion on a rotating basis. The other three games consisted of major conference champions not playing in the championship game, as well as two at-large teams. The 1998 NCAA Division I-A football season was the first of the Bowl Championship Series, which crowned Tennessee its national champion, the schools first since the 1950s and one year after mega star quarterback Peyton Manning left for the NFL.

However, a change implemented before the beginning 2006 season allowed for the creation of a fifth BCS bowl, the BCS National Championship Game. The BCS National Championship Game is now a separate event from the host bowl, but is played at the same site one week after New Year's Day. (For example, in January 2007 Glendale hosted first the Fiesta Bowl, then the BCS National Championship Game a week later.) The game's location will rotate among the four main bowl sites of Glendale, New Orleans, Miami Gardens and Pasadena. To differentiate the sites the sponsor of that game's normal bowl will also sponsor the BCS National Championship Game (e.g., Tostitos will sponsor the game when in Glendale, Allstate will sponsor the game when in New Orleans, and so on).[1] The 2006 NCAA Division I FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) football season, or the college football season, began on August 31, 2006 and, aside from all-star exhibition games that follow, concluded with the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) National Championship Game on January 8, 2007 in Glendale, Arizona, USA, where the...
